Now That It Is Obama Versus McCain

Obama reasserts his hawkish side to AIPAC:

"I'll do everything in my power to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Everything"

According to Haaretz: Turning to the contentious issue of Jerusalem, Obama said that the city must remain the capital of Israel and undivided.

"I will always leave the threat of military action on the table to defend our security, and that of our ally Israel."

On his lapel he wore an American flag pin - actually an American-Israeli flag pin.

Although I still lean toward the notion that his Democratic nomination victory is an overall positive, this AIPAC speech and his recent, and unecessary, resignation from his church, along with other rightward trends, worry me.

I can definitely see this guy attacking Iran and liberals standing behind him or staying quiet because "we can't criticize him lest we bolster the Republicans; wait until after the mid-term elections," or if the attack were to come after the mid-terms, "wait until after the next presidential election."

Now if Clinton gets the VP nod, will an Obama victory in November be more bitter than sweet?

He already left the Black church because they invited a white priest to speak about white privilege. Talk about comforting whitey! But this AIPAC lovin... pshh! Maybe he's converting to Judaism(?). It's too much, it's painful.

Gore and Kerry had better policy towards Israel/Palestine. Yet we are to believe Obama is bringing "change"?

These are desperate times. They got us. Ugh.
